The Beauty & Benefits of Essential Oils

Our bodies are made to bind with the cells of plants! Which is why essential oils are very beneficial to include in our lives as part of a balanced, relaxing and healthy lifestyle!  They smell amazing, the heal aches and pains, balance the hemispheres of the brain which allows in more ability to focus, relax and enjoy life.   It is also interesting that the ones we do not enjoy the smell of or really dislike, can mean that we need more of that oil coming through inhalation or ingestion.

Pure essential oils have some anti-bacterial properties. They increase the production of white blood cells, which help fight infectious illnesses. It is through these properties that aromatic herbs have been esteemed so highly throughout the ages and so widely used during the onsets of malaria, typhoid, and of course, the epidemic plagues during the 16th century. Research has found that people who consistently use pure essential oils have a higher level of resistance to illnesses, colds, flues, and diseases than the average person. Further indications show that such individuals, after contracting a cold, flu, or other illness, will recover 60-70 percent faster than those who do not use essential oils.- Reference Guide for Essential Oils by Connie and Alan Higley

Young Living Essential Oils are the only oils I have purchased that I actually use to ingest for colds, flus, allergies and to just boost my immune system.  I rarely get sick, but I use the oils often!

The oils are very potent, which is beneficial in many ways:

They last a long time.

You only need 1 or 2 drops, depending on the use.

They can heal damaged DNA and repair cells, cancerous and diseased.

By diffusing them, particles are broken into millions and move through the room
